With the recent COVID-19 developments, we continue to receive questions from our customers around our intent to operate. In this regard, our commitment remains fairly firm and straightforward. We expect to continue to operate and meet our contractual supply agreements with all of our customers subject to regulatory and health and safety guidelines in operating responsibly and protecting our people and will continue to do so.

We have no concerns around our barley supply having contracted access to our barley through October and working toward contracting our barley with farmers for the 2020 crop.

We continue to communicate and work with our transportation and support service providers and have not seen a disruption, nor are we aware of any planned interruption to service.

We have seen in other regions some governmental agencies, such as San Francisco, ordering a shelter in place order for all services not deemed essential. While we have no such order in the areas we operate, we are looking to define how such an order would impact our ability to continue operating. We intend to continue operating as long as we can while keeping our people safe and not at risk.

Should circumstances change, we will provide updates as available.
